    New wood floor. Needs sanding, cleaning in between two coats of polyurethane.

    In my “striving for perfection” mode for this condo (remember ONLY for this condo, our Hermann house is renovated with Home Depot schlock) I wanted a higher end finish. DH looked at me cross eyed about my faaaaaaancy idea .

    I quickly decided that I would have to let go of that idea and just let him do his thing which is very nice and so be it. Very little of the tiny floor space will show anyway.

    But it is not the floor finish that my decorating guru, Laure Berne, recommends for wood floors to make them look timeless.

    Also, I’ve given a $500 deposit to someone in my neighborhood who does decorative painting. She’s busy with another client right now but she will get to my job, the tiny bedroom, eventually. I believe her estimate was $1500 for the job for this 10 x 10 bedroom.

    not a pictorial mural. She is doing a faux finish that requires multiple applications.But —and this is important— the wall will remain smooth. That was critical because DH spent so much time smoothing and patching these old walls.

    IL, your condo is really going to be beautiful. I will have to google those types of wall finishes.
